Dear Readers: Blount Today to close
Found this online this afternoon on knoxnews.com:
MARYVILLE - State Sen. Raymond Finney said today he "probably" will drop his request for a recount of votes in Sevier County in last week's Republican primary, which he unofficially lost to Rep. Doug Overbey by 139 votes.
Both candidates are Maryville Republicans.
Finney, who served one term representing Blount and Sevier counties, said part of the reason he filed the petition was that there is a very short window of time after the election in which he can ask for a recount and that if he had had more time to investigate what his petition called "irregularities" in the voting he might not have filed the petition.
Finney said he intends to "go on with my life" and added that some of the questions raised in his petition "may never be answered."
Read the complete story Saturday online and in the News Sentinel.
Wish you and Mrs. Finney "All the Best" on your retirement.
Hopefully I can get sister Sarah calmed down before she gets another case of the itchey bowel problem. Her husband Elmer called last night and said Sarah ate a mess of maters, big mistate! She went to Kroger and caused a ruckus in the womens bathroom and even called the fire bregade to hose it down. Cuzin Billey up on Nebo should get back on track of taken care of his Pit Bulls before they cross pollinate with the goats. Dang that would be a "Mell of a Hess" ugly creature I would imagine. Peace FTB
